Hello,

Looking for some black touch-up paint for my frame and handlebars for the odd nicks that have come up from regular riding. I obviously don't want the frame to rust. Just need a very small container, the dings are minimal. Thank you, have a nice day.

Nail polish or permanent marker

Yea, sometimes just a black Sharpie or other permanent marker can do a great job of hiding blemishes.

I use Testor model paint, available at most hobby shops and hardware stores. You can get it in both matt and gloss finish. Buy a bunch of cheapo fine brushes. Clean it well with isopropyl alcohol first.

I use a paint pen. Easy to cover scratches with the fine tip... 47338

You say you need black.
Testor makes flat or glossy, whichever suits your needs.
I needed a semi-gloss so I used flat black and just hand rubbed it to give it a slight sheen.

Great little bottles. I remember using them 50+ years ago during my plastic models stage.
